When I say I am trying to do something, it means I am stuck in that...trying. Trying to do something means not ever succeeding at doing it. I try to understand this idea, but I don't until I accept the fact that it not something to be understood. It is something to be accepted. It is was it is. Most things just are. There may not be any explanation. That's where faith comes in. Trust too. Believing in yourself. That is more than trying. That is knowing...knowing that it is what it is and accepting the fact that we may never know more than that. Ultimately, what would it change to know the why of things?
So that is what I mean by giving up trying. Just doing. That's the ticket. Surrendering into the mystery and accepting the wonder as part of the condition of life. Without it, it would probably get awfully boring.
So maybe like in that old commercial said about Life cereal back in the '70s, we can be like Mikey and try it, we'll like it.
